KL Bunga Raya

Slightly off the beaten track on Errol Street in North Melbourne is Malaysian inspired restaurant KL Bunga Raya. With prices that make McDonalds look expensive (including an array of $7 wines!)  KL Bunga Raya's food is inexpensive but still tasty, in a venue that’s casual but warm and friendly. 

The freshly cooked roti that came out minutes after we sat down was by far the highlight of the night - crisp on the outside and buttery on the inside, it’s a must for anyone’s order when attending this venue.

The fresh and fragrant soup of the laksa was another highlight of the evening - however the seafood didn’t exactly taste fresh, so perhaps go with another one of their laksa options. The beef rendang was also a disappointment - whilst the beef was cooked to perfection, the overall dish lacked any great flavour.

Whilst a far cry from the best Malaysian in Melbourne, with its reasonable price tag, incredibly friendly staff and plenty of other mouth watering-looking dishes to choose from, I would recommend hitting up KL Bunga Raya if you’re in the area and in the mood for Malaysian.

Food: 2.5/5
Service: 4/5
Venue: 3/5
Total: 9.5/15
Verdict: like - get around to trying it at some point
